You will help drive policy adherence across the team and help ensure a robust risk management control framework is in place.

Being tertiary qualified with advanced Excel skills, you will combine your experience in Fund Management or Loan operations with your attention to detail to form an integral part of a very successful Fund Management team, delivering a high level of service to our stakeholders and clients.

Your strong prioritisation skills, being able to deliver within tight timelines, your effectiveness in planning and ensuring quality output will be essential in this role. You will have excellent written and oral communication skills, and be a highly motivated, proactive, and resilient individual.
